Literacy in Rap

Our Literacy In Rap program emphasizes the importance of reading, writing, public speaking, and poetic language skills as an essential foundation for Hip Hop performance. Students in the emceeing sessions learn about writing, structure, bar counts, call/response, rhyming, and freestyling/pattern exercises through active classroom participation. Our program is designed to promote the true roots of Hip Hop, which are centered around positive and conscious expression. 

This residency is a recurring session for in-school, after-school, and community-based settings. In-person school residency sessions are typically scheduled three days a week in one-hour blocks for eight weeks. The residency schedule can be customized per partner needs, and short workshops are available.
